Property code: PC016

The property is in a great position for excellent coastal walks, local pubs providing food and the Polruan Ferry are just minutes’ walk away. Polruan is an ancient fishing village famous for its boat building heritage. Perfectly positioned on the Fowey river estuary, which is a thriving centre for fishing, seafaring, shipbuilding and agriculture. This remoteness gives the area an unspoilt charm with its narrow streets and alleyways where flights of slate steps twist between the houses. Further afield there are plenty of places to visit, why not visit the tall ships at Charlestown, take the brewery tour in St Austell or visit the Eden project or the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Take the dog for a coastal walk to Lantic Bay Beach.

Entering the cottage on the 1st floor into the delightful hallway, with stairs leading downstairs to the lounge and kitchen area either side of the staircase. The lounge is light and airy with a large sofa and a beautiful feature fireplace with electric fire. From the lounge enter the newly built extension with windows all around to make the most of the beautiful views over the harbour, just perfect to sit back, relax and read a good book. The refurbished kitchen/diner, with a view out to the harbour and beyond through the cottage, is contemporary and well-equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge/freeze microwave and dishwasher. The house enjoys underfloor central heating provided by a low carbon Air Source Heat Pump. There is also a handy utility room with WC. After a day of exploring the coastline, climb the stairs and retreat to the bedrooms, there is a king-size bedroom which holds breath-taking views over the village and the river from the dual aspect windows, and a double bedroom with added sofa bed. To complete the first floor there is a family bathroom with freestanding bath, separate shower, and WC.

Heading outside from the extension you will find a patio area with seating and grassed area surrounded by beautifully planted, mature flower beds. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the panoramic views with a cool beverage after a day of exploring the local area and all it has to offer. Due to the location of the cottage, there is NO access to the cottage by car. A luggage drop off point is approx. 250 yards from the cottage. Please note there is a sloping lane up to the cottage.

Chapel House exceeded our expectations from the moment we walked through the door. Wonderful views from every window, immaculately clean with everything you could need. The terrace and delightfully planted garden were so lovely, we sat for hours watching the view. Would highly recommend this property and we wished we could have stayed longer.

We cant wait to come back & stay here again, we really liked staying here as a family. The house is well equipped with everything you might need during your stay. The view from the garden is fantastic & we spent most evenings sat out watching the bats silhouetted against the back drop of fowey harbour while listening to the owls hoot in the distancRead moree, simply magical. Definitely use the bag drop of point near the house when arriving & leaving as it is a long walk to the car park. 10/10 perfect. Hide

Beautiful house in a blissful location! Had wonderful week, particularly enjoyed sitting in the conservatory in the evening watching all the boats. (Could have been a little cleaner in some parts, but not enough of a problem to prevent us visiting again.) Yes, quite a steep access, but if you're fit and able it's not a problem, and the elevated posRead moreition looking over the inlet is well worth the effort. Drop off from car was easy enough, too.

Chapel House was lovely and reflected the care taken in creating a homely, relaxing environment to spend time in. The garden was a real highlight, with beautiful views of the estuary and over to Fowey. We would happily return.

It was lovely staying at Chappel House. The conservatory really adds to the house with its stunning views. A nice place to eat an evening meal if not out on the patio. Very well equipped.

A wonderful cottage to stay in at any time of year; comfortable well equipped and with amazing (SW facing) views over estuary and Fowey. We come back every year for an annual "re-charge of the batteries".
